Another Trade Proposal!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I've read a bunch of the trade proposals and some of the most consistent names that come up are Hedman, Malone, Gardiner and Schenn that we'd like to see in a Canucks uniform next year.

That brings me to my proposal... What about Teddy Purcell?

He was great in the playoffs last year- 17 points in 18 games, and this season he had 24 goals and 41 assists for 65 points. He also finished plus 9 on a non-playoff team- Stamkos, Purcell and Bergeron were the only "plus" players that played over half the season (41 games).

I was wondering what you'd think of him playing on a second line with Booth and Kesler?

As for the trade itself, I thought it might look like this:

To Tampa: Luongo, Ballard, Raymond's rights, a draft pick (maybe 2nd or 3rd round?)

To Vancouver: Purcell and Hedman

The common theme I've found in reading many of the threads is the need for a top-6 forward and a top-4 defenseman. Through this trade we'd address both of those. Gillis also talked about getting younger- Purcell is only 26 and Hedman 21, so it would fit with that too.

Love to hear your thoughts!

I highly doubt they give you the 2nd overall pick from a couple years ago and their winger that has found good chemistry on Stamkos' left side.

They probably don't want to give up Hedman at all considering a thin blue-line, and please don't even mention Malone.

A trade with Tampa Bay makes most sense but the bulk of the pieces coming back will probably be picks/prospects.
